When your child is the artist of his own book, that book becomes a true treasure!
The Big Book for Little Hands is an interactive book with very simple sentences for the young reader. Each page has a basic background and instructions at the bottom of the page. After reading the instructions, your child uses creativity and imagination to create a scene like no other. With everything from color matching and patterns to critical thinking and reading skills, this book would be great for children regardless of age or gender.
When I first gave this book to my 6-year-old, he thought it might be fun but didn't show much interest. However, when he finally sat down to work through the book, he spent three hours coloring and creating-and only covered about 10 of the 58 scenes.
With a spiral binding, stiff cardstock pages, and a sturdy hardback cover, this book will stand the test of time-and of constant rereading!
Cocagne and Strevens-Marzo did a fantastic job when creating this book!
Armchair Interviews agrees.
